held in solitary confinement. that was early 1963. in april 1963, coretta scott king had just given birth to her fourth child, bernice. she was just days old when her father, reverend dr. martin luther king, jr. was arrested on good friday in birmingham alabama that april. that arrest is remembered because while he was in jail in birmingham, a group of mostly white clergy in alabama spoke out and published an ad calling on dr. martin luther king to stop the protests, to work inside the system and stop organizing these demonstrations. to stop being the outside agitator, he responded with a letter from the birmingham jail which he wrote longhand in the margins of the newspaper in which he was able to read the ad and read the stories of his fellow ministers criticizing his tactics. his arrest was one component of a big activist plan for birmingham that year. birmingham was seen as being among the most impossible places for progress. it was the most stubborn, the most violent, the most rigidly opposed to desegregation. the plan was to push there in one of the worst places notice country
